Re: Intermountain Erie PS-1 84000


The diagram sht for C&O 2990-2999, last revised in 1968 (vs. drwg 1955, no revisions for the Erie 84000 sht) for these 1954 built cars has the following note --

PULLMAN CUSHION UNDERFRAME - Rubber Cushion Gear - 8" Travel

Also notes APEX TRI-LOK running board & brake step (might have been an upgrade)

Lot 8160-E

Also notes a " 10" channel center sill 28.3 # per Ft. Pullman Cushion

So get you CBCs out and check out END-OF-CAR Cushioning systems and see what you have to add. I notes standard Pullman underframe.

Note, these Erie cars need new underframes since they had the PS cushion
underframe. I've held off on building any of these small lots, until I can
find an underframe drawing. I've never found out how PS persuaded these
roads to try the cars with cushion underframes. Roads that had these cars
C&O 10
Erie 10
GN 15
N&W 5
NYC 25
PRR 20
WP 10
May have been others.
